Bunions and Pearls

[image from superstock.com]

Wild Woman
of the
Western Sea,
send me
some wisdom.
Send me
some strength.
Send me some
inspiration.

How do I
turn this
hard old
crusty bunion
of a life
into a pearl?

  2. I love your description of life as an "old crusty bunion"...it does seem that way on occasion...LOL! No-one is better at turning bunions into pearls than you, but I'll bet you wish you hadn't had so much practice at it!

    I too feel in need of wisdom, strength and inspiration...with any luck, Wild Woman will drop some off for both of us...:)

  5. Polish is the answer. Life does that to us. Like wind blows sand against the stone, like water over the rocks. They become smooth, and pleasant to be with. As you are. Your blessings are abundant and overflow. Allow your heart to stay open, feel all that is here, and tell me about it.xoxoxoxoxo

  7. Pearls are the result of time-consuming smoothing over of rough patches...I'm sure we all get there in the end.

  12. somehow I think you have:) Pearls of wisdom gleam from this poem. Also, I LOVE the header photo! I too, am a sky-lover. I'm trying to post a daily photo-header. So far they have been predominantly sky-shots. I just posted tonight's sunset.
